Lord, I cannot wait a single moment more…

nuck-caveToday’s episode features seven insights from Nicholas Edward Cave for us to reflect upon.

If these seven psalms get too heavy for you there’s lots of relief for you in the form of new cuts from Ben Woods, Fazerdaze, Motte, the legendary Dr Hitchcock, and many more.

On with the show.

* The inspiration for this week’s lyrical heading.

The Show: “Gorgeous” George Galloway vs Bill “No Spin Zone” O’Reilly. And the return of The Nicol Brothers.

Tunisian / Palestinian combo Checkpoint 303 have a brand new track out, “Needle Stuck On Lebanon“, which makes good use of news broadcast samples from around the world.

Not only should we thank them for letting us know the song is available as a free download from their website, we are also eternally grateful that they sent us this link to a George Galloway interview that appeared on Sky News UK recently. It’s not a spectacle for the fainthearted, as the Respect MP tears strips off the hapless journalist to the point where he comes across as a misogynistic bully.

We can’t imagine Rupert Murdoch was amused and it certainly wouldn’t have gone to air on Rupert’s other news channel, Fox. Unless George went up against Bill O’Reilly. That really would be a heavyweight challenge. So much so that it could be made the equivalent of a pay-per-view prizefight. We’re willing to cough up a few bucks to watch so let’s start lobbying for it now.

And thank you to The Nicol Brothers aka Offset and Hank for dropping in today to lay down a few drum’n’bass sets. Cheers fellas.

The Show: Drum ‘n’ bass madness

True drum and bass overload on The Joint today! It seemed to generate a lot of text messages and phone calls. We’ll have to do it more often since we’ve been awfully slack on the d’n’b front.

Double big thanks to Offset and Hank (aka The Nicol Brothers) for popping in to play a few sets of their favourite d’n’b cuts. Check the playlist below to see the ground they covered – Offset going for the crunchier numbers and Hank going for the mellower melodic tunes. Hearing Hank cut Headspace‘s “Fly Away” in and out of High Contrast’s “Racing Green” was priceless. What’s scary is that Hank is only 14 and would give a lot of DJs a run for their money. We’re a lot, lot older than 14 and can’t even mix one record.

And speaking of Headspace his alter ego Andre Hemer has an exhibition of his paintings on at 64zero3 gallery in Christchurch.
